DEFENSE Secretary Delfin Lorenzana has assured the public that the government will not spend even a single centavo for the hero’s burial of former President Ferdinand Marcos, except for the military honors.

“Ang gastos lang natin ay ‘yung (military) honors (Our only expenditure will be the military honors). There will be no money spent on transportation of the cadaver. Sa kanila (Marcos family) ‘yon,” Lorenzana said Monday in an interview at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.


The Marcos burial is reportedly scheduled on September 18.

However, the Supreme Court issued on August 23 a 20-day status quo order.

Earlier, it can be recalled that President Rodrigo insisted for the burial of the former President and dictator to stop and end all the issue that, for him, divides the country.

They are contesting if Marcos is a hero. I do not care whether he is a hero or not, if he is a soldier, he should be buried there. The issue about his heroism is political,”Duterte said.

The President has already ordered the Department of National Defense (DND) to facilitate the burial of the late Marcos. AJRSP
